  • Premises Liability - The
    plaintiff tripped in a gas station
    parking lot and broke her elbow – a
    Munfordville jury awarded the
    plaintiff $85,000 in special damages,
    but just $7,500 for her pain and
    suffering
    Brown v. Zack Brothers Truck Stop,
    14-31
    Plaintiff: Brian R. Dettman, Dettman
    & Associates, Louisville
    Defense: Thomas L. Travis and L.
    Tucker Willis, Ward Hocker &
    Thornton, Lexington
    Verdict: $93,615 for plaintiff less
    30% comparative fault
    Court: Hart, J. Simms,
    2-23-16
     Sherie Brown, then age 51, was a
    patron on 12-30-13 at the Zack
    Brothers Truck Stop in Horse Cave.
    She arrived early that morning with
    her husband and planned to go
    inside and eat – she is a diabetic and
    observes a strict eating schedule.
     As Brown left the truck stop, she
    approached her husband’s big rig.
    He’s an over-the-road trucker and
    she accompanies him on his trips.
    Brown (who was carrying a cup of
    coffee) caught her left foot in an inch
    and a half deep crack in the
    pavement some ten feet from the
    door.
     Brown tripped and fell forward
    several feet. She landed on her elbow
    and fractured it. The fracture was
    surgically repaired at U of L
    Hospital. Despite a course of
    physical therapy, Brown has
    continued to complain of pain. There
    was also proof she will require a
    second surgery to remove hardware
    from the initial repair. The injuries
    were confirmed by the treating Dr.
    David Seligson, Orthopedics,
    Louisville.
     In this lawsuit Brown alleged
    negligence by Zack Brothers in
    failing to maintain the parking lot.
    She cited proof that the current
    owner (who has had the property for
    eight years) hadn’t done any resurfacing,
    inspection or repairs.
    If she prevailed she sought her
    medicals of $60,815 plus $50,000
    more for future care. The jury could
    also award her $500,000 for past and
    future suffering in two categories.
     Zack Brothers denied fault and
    blamed the fall on Brown’s own
    inattention. To the crack itself, the
    defense suggested it was, (1) open
    and obvious, and (2) of the normal
    variety that one would observe on
    any paved surface. A defense IME,
    Dr. Rick Lyons, Orthopedics,
    Lexington, disputed the need for a
    future surgery.
     This case was tried for two days in
    Munfordville. The jury first found
    that Zack Brothers had failed to
    exercise ordinary care to maintain its
    premises. The jury also found Brown
    at fault. The fault was then
    apportioned 70% to the truck stop
    and the remaining 30% to Brown.
     Turning to damages Brown took
    her medicals as claimed plus $25,000
    for future care. She was awarded
    $5,000 for past suffering and $2,500
    more for in the future. The raw
    verdict totaled $93,615. It was
    reduced by comparative fault in the
    court’s judgment to $65,320. The
    defense offer of judgment before trial
    had been for $45,000.
